The original definition of Vegan, coined in the 1940s by Donald Watson, was that a vegan is the one who tries to minimise animal suffering in all the ways possible and reasonable.
From this point of view, if you have no reasonable alternative and really need that granola bars, then you can still consider yourself vegan. Otherwise, it is more correct if you consider yourself a vegetarian.
